Overview

Theres nothing more enjoyable than when political bigwigs stick their feet in their mouth. Whether discussing foreign policy, the choice of vice-presidential running mate, the State of the Union, or the state of their marriage, the chances to screw up political careers are seemingly endless. In Idiots, Hypocrites, Demagogues, and more Idiots, humorist Paul Slansky gathers together some of the most outrageous, hypocritical, self-serving, demagogic, criminal, offensive, surreal, and just plain idiotic moments in American politics over the last fifty years. With deliciously subversive sections entitled "Inaccurate Prognostications," "Delicious Wallows In Schadenfreude," "Bizarre Blurts," and "Freudian Slips," this book brings together the worst mistakes Americas politicians, policy-makers, and wonk-heads ever had the audacity to commit-sometimes two or three times.
